As a military wife, I am a proud supporter of our troops, and I am deeply concerned about how the public has treated our brave men and women.

They volunteer to serve our country with honor, and their sacrifices and dedication to service deserve our utmost respect.

Our troops and veterans need leaders who will keep their best interests in mind, and Dawn Ortiz-Legg, a candidate for the California Assembly, has made it clear that she will not be that leader. As the founder of the local chapter of the radical organization CodePink, Dawn Ortiz-Legg should be embarrassed and ashamed to ask veterans for their vote.

CodePink is a hate group that coincides with a far-left and anti-military mindset. From protesting military medical centers that provide care for wounded troops to calling them terrorists, CodePink members are an embarrassment to our community.

Dawn should not be asking our military members, veterans or military families for their votes.

She should be apologizing to them for her involvement with such a disgraceful and regressive organization. Voters look for strong candidates who will support and care for our troops, and Ortiz-Legg has proven she is not that candidate!

Phyllis Stout, Arroyo Grande
